    1 I N T R O D U C T I O N 5 1 Introduction This first Annual Report of the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM) starts with a short account of the founding history, mission and goals of ERIM. Subsequently ERIM’s organization is described. The Management Report 1999 reports the most important activities in this founding year of ERIM. Then follows an account of the five ERIM Research Programs: LIS (Business Processes, Logistics and Information Systems), ORG (Organizing for Performance), MKT (Decision-Making in Marketing Management), F&A (Financial Decision-Making and Accounting) and STR (Strategic Renewal and the Dynamics of Firms, Networks and Industries). This account includes information about the ERIM fellows, members and the PhD candidates associated with each of these programs. The Annual Report also describes ERIM’s PhD program and concludes with a list of dissertations and publications for each of the five ERIM programs in 1999.

This occurred first in the United States. The Ford Foundation and Carnegie Foundation Reports of 1959 encouraged academic business schools to incorporate behavioural sciences, economics, mathematics, operations research and statistics into their teaching and research. Since then ‘management’ has developed as a comprehensive academic field with a thorough scientific base, a vast expansion of academic and professional literature, and the Nobel Prize winner: Herbert Simon, both an economist and a psychologist, in 1978. In Rotterdam, in 1913, the Handelshoogeschool (School of Commerce) was established to emphasize study in the practical managerial problems of business. Later, the school changed its name into Nederlandse Economische Hogeschool (Netherlands School of Economics), now with an emphasis on the economic approach, which at that time was the most developed discipline to incorporate ‘management’. The School of Economics (since 1973 part of the Erasmus University), through its departments in the area of business economics retained this emphasis on the economic aspects of management. The other disciplinary perspectives such as the behavioural sciences and technology started to receive more attention in 1970 with the establishment of the Graduate School of Management, a joint venture of Erasmus University, Delft University of Technology, and Leiden University. In 1984, the Graduate School of Management was integrated with Erasmus University as the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), which is, in many respects the successor of the original ‘Handelshoogeschool’ established at the beginning of this century. Also in Rotterdam, the study of management developed a scientific dimension and both the School of Economics and the Rotterdam School of Management established their research institutes. For research in business economics, the School of Economics had established RIBES (Rotterdams Instituut voor Bedrijfseconomische Studies) and the Rotterdam School of Management

    8 A N N U A L R E P O R T 1 9 9 9 had ERASM (Erasmus Institute for Advanced Research in Management). From 1986, the Roterdam School of Management also had a PhD program in General Management. In 1998 the two Schools decided to bring together their best resources in the domain of management and jointly founded a new research institute: ERIM, which stands for: Erasmus Research Institute of Management. The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) has officially accredited ERIM on June 3 1999. 2.1 Missions and Goals The mission of ERIM is to contribute to scientific research that enables organizations to assess and improve their business processes in order to perform in a profitable and responsible way. The research focus is on the firm in its environment, its intra- and inter-firm relations, it’s business processes in their interdependent connections and the management of these as an exclusive and distinctive scientific domain. The objective of ERIM is to carry out first rate research in management, as recognized by the community of peers and to offer an advanced PhD program in Management for the education of new, excellent scholars in the field. More specifically, the goals of ERIM are: 1. To be a high quality institute with a high visibility and a strong reputation among the peers of the international community of researchers in management. 2. To make ongoing and significant contributions to the body-of-knowledge of management. 3. To achieve a high output of scientific publications in the top journals and books of research in management. 4. To produce a significant annual output of high quality PhD’s. 2.2 ERIM’s Organization ERIM researchers are working in one of the following five ERIM Research Programs: LIS (Business Processes, Logistics and Information Systems) ORG (Managing Relationships for Performance) MKT (Decision-Making in Marketing Management) F&A (Financial Decision-Making and Accounting) STR (Strategic Renewal and the Dynamics of Firms, Networks and Industries)

As the next figure shows the ERIM Research Programs are the pillars of the Research Institute and Research School. LIS ORG MKT F&A STR An ERIM Research Program has program directors, called ERIM Fellows, other researchers, called ERIM Members and junior members, called ERIM Associate Members. The criteria and procedure for becoming ERIM Fellow, ERIM Member and ERIM Associate Member are described in the ERIM Membership Charter. The names of the ERIM researchers of the different ERIM Programs are given in section 4 of this report. The organization of ERIM and the responsibilities of the different persons and administrative bodies are regulated in the “Reglement Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM)”, approved by the Board (College van Bestuur) of the Erasmus University on March 6, 2000. The Scientific Director is the responsible administrator (bestuur) of ERIM. The Scientific Director is assisted by an Associate Director (adjunct directeur) and a PhD Director, responsible for the PhD program. The ERIM Office supports the different activities within ERIM. The Supervisory Board (Raad van Toezicht) is a predominantly external body for advice and supervision. The Program Committee (Programmaraad) consists of five internal ERIM fellows from the five ERIM Programs. The PhD Advisory Committee (Aio-Raad) consists of PhD students.

    3 M A N A G E M E N T R E P O R T O F 1 9 9 9 1 1 3 Management report of 1999 During the period of preparation of the KNAW accreditation request, ERIM had two Scientific Directors who have served until July 1, 1999: Prof.dr. P.H.B.F. Franses, Rotterdam School of Economics Prof.dr. W.F. van Raaij, Rotterdam School of Management As of July 1, 1999 the Scientific Director of ERIM is: Prof.dr.ir. Berend Wierenga Dr. Albert Wagelmans was appointed Associate Director. He is also the Scientific Director of RIBES. Dr.ir. Gerrit van Bruggen who was PhD Director of ERASM, became the PhD Director of ERIM. This Annual Report will only deal with the activities of ERIM after its official KNAW accreditation, i.e. the period from July 1, 1999 to December 31, 1999. The report with respect to publication output, see later in this Annual Report, refers to the whole year of 1999, however. Inaugural Meeting ERIM was officially launched at a meeting on October 20th, 1999. During that meeting the philosophy of ERIM was reiterated: its mission and goals and how ERIM will try to reach these goals. This is illustrated in Figure 1. ERIM: encouraging and stimulating the research environment Primary process: Resources: Top research Missions People & & International & Goals Money PhD program ERIM: production of researcher oriented facilities and services Mission and Goals

    1 2 A N N U A L R E P O R T 1 9 9 9 Resources For a strong performance in terms of research output, qualified researchers are needed, who find themselves in a research environment that is stimulating for themselves as well as for the PhD students under their supervision. ERIM wants to attract and keep competent researchers and provide them with an effective research infrastructure, by means of facilities and services. Researchers with demonstrated research capabilities become members of ERIM and the two Schools, the School of Economics and the Rotterdam School of Management, provide them with the research time needed. In general an ERIM member has 0.4 fte research time. The Schools also provide the financial means for the research environment. The College van Bestuur (EUR) provides a limited amount of additional money as part of the “Breedtestrategie”. In ERIM, this money is used to create additional postdoc positions. Development activities Although ERIM could benefit from much of the work that had already been done in the institutes that were it predecessors: RIBES and ERASM, several steps had to be undertaken to get ERIM off the ground. ERIM office An ERIM Office was created consisting of a secretary general, an office manager and a PhD coordinator. The Office is located in the F/G building, room FB-63. ERIM statutes The statutes of ERIM were formulated and approved by the University Board of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Program Committee The Program Committee was officially installed. In this Program Committee, each of the five ERIM Research Programs is represented. For the composition of the committee, see section 2 of this annual report. The first meeting of the Program Committee took place November 30, 2000. Supervisory Board The Supervisory Board consists of external experts on research in management and the Deans of the two founding Schools. The members of the Supervisory Board were officially appointed and the Board will meet for the first time in 2000. For the composition of the Supervisory Board, see section 2 of this annual report.

The address is: http://www.erim.eur.nl/ ERIM Membership Charter The ERIM membership charter was developed, which describes the rules for ERIM membership and the appointment procedures. ERIM has three different types of members: ERIM Fellows (who are also director of one of the ERIM Research Programs), ERIM Members and ERIM Associate Members (recent PhD’s). ERIM Report Series A new Report Series “Research in Management” was initiated, of which the first issue appeared in spring 2000. ERIM Support Programs As part of the efforts to create an effective infrastructure for ERIM researchers and PhD students, a set of ERIM Support Programs (ESP) was developed with the aimof providing financial support for specific activities. ERIM has the following ESP’s, for which financial support can be requested: • Seminar/Colloquia /Workshops • ERIM Report Series • Scientific Conferences • Editing of Scientific Texts • Short Research Visits • Field Research Data Collection and Software • ERIM Support programs for PhD students • PhD Series Research in Management These Erim Support Programs are described in the ERIM ESP Manual, June 2000. ERIM PhD Program After a round of discussions with the ERIM Fellows of the different ERIM Research Programs a new PhD program was devised and implemented. This PhD program is described in section 5 of this Report.

    4 R E S E A R C H P R O G R A M S 1 5 4 Research programs The research undertaken by ERIM is focussed on the management of the firm in its environment, its intra- and inter-firm relations, and its business processes in their interdependent connections. A firm is best described as an organization, dedicated to the production of goods and services. This domain of research is called Research in Management. The joint ERIM research program contains five (sub) research programs 1: The ERIM program LIS concerns business processes, logistics and information systems. It focuses on the managerial implications of the ICT aspects of business processes with an emphasis on the ICT applications to logistics, information systems, and other business processes. The ERIM program ORG concerns the Organizing (of relationships) for performance. These relationships are conceived as a business process of human, technical, financial and informational resources. Key themes are flexibility and process management, made possible by ICT. This flexibility is becoming obligatory from the perspective that processes cut across functional areas and that markets and organizational structures rapidly evolve these days. The ERIM program MKT deals with decision-making in marketing management. Rapidly evolving markets require new decision-making processes, which may be supported by the availability of detailed databases. Marketing is concerned with attracting and retaining customers. With the new data collection methods it is possible to evaluate the process of the marketing performance of the use of (marketing) instruments, almost immediately. Consumer Decision-Making and choice are influenced by marketing communications and shopping environments, as a persuasion process to acquire and retain customers. 1 For a full account of the ERIM Research Program the reader is referred to the ERIM KNAW application dd. December 1998 and the ERIM Website http://www.erim.eur.nl

    1 6 A N N U A L R E P O R T 1 9 9 9 The ERIM program F&A aims at designing optimal methods and strategies for financial decision-making and accounting. A key issue here is the management of risk, a factor that becomes relevant when markets evolve more rapidly. Risk may be reduced by the increased availability of up-to-date information. Risk does not only concern asset prices and options, but also the risk of investments into new products. The ERIM program STR focuses on the structure of the organization, both in large and in small firms. In view of evolving markets, recurrent strategic renewal, innovative business processes, and the dynamics of firms, networks, and industries are highly relevant, and have an impact on logistics, marketing, finance and the organization itself.

    5 P H D P R O G R A M I N M A N A G E M E N T 2 3 5 PhD Program in Management 5.1 Overview of the PhD Program In 1999 ERIM’s PhD program has been designed and the first group of PhD students has entered the program. The first goal of ERIM’s PhD program is to educate and train future faculty of international business schools. The program can be considered as successful if, on a yearly basis, a number of graduates of the program are recruited by international top business schools as faculty members. The second goal of the program is that research done by PhD candidates forms a substantial contribution to ERIM’s research output. Each thesis should lead to publications in top research journals. If the program succeeds in achieving these goals, this will enhance the reputation of ERIM as highly qualified research institute, which will be enhanced and make it easier to recruit new PhD candidates in the future. To be considered as attractive faculty members, PhD candidates need to become specialized researchers in their own research fields and be able to publish papers in top research journals. Furthermore, they also need to be able to position their own research field in the broader stream of management research. This implies that the PhD program should provide PhD candidates with knowledge and (research) skills that make them specialized researchers with sufficient knowledge of the various areas of research in management.

    2 4 A N N U A L R E P O R T 1 9 9 9 5.2 The Course Program: Towards Customization In the ERIM PhD program, the PhD candidate and their supervisor(s) are jointly responsible for the composition of a course plan that helps the PhD candidate in developing the knowledge and research skills necessary to become a specialized researcher. Four months after the PhD candidate has entered the program, they will have to submit a course plan to the PhD director which contains information about the courses the PhD candidate plans to take. These courses should complement the PhD candidates existing knowledge and skills and be helpful in carrying out the research project. This means that each PhD candidate will compose a program that is customized to their individual needs and interests. The course plan should consist of three types of courses: core courses, skills training, and specialization courses. The following picture gives an overview of the structure of the PhD program in ERIM’s Research School. Specialization courses Specialization courses Specialization courses Specialization courses Specialization courses LIS ORG MKT F&A STR Skill Training Core courses on Philosophy of Science and Business Studies Core courses on Research in Management 1. Core courses 1a. Core Course on Research in Management This core course should give the PhD candidates an overview of the content and type of research that takes place in the five ERIM programs. Following this course helps the PhD candidates in developing a picture of the context in which their research takes place. The course consists of five one-day seminars. This concerns seminars in: • Business Processes (Logistics and Operations Management) • Organizational Theory • Marketing • Finance and Accounting • Strategy

    5 P H D P R O G R A M I N M A N A G E M E N T 2 5 1b. Core Course on Philosophy of Science and Business Studies The aim of this course is to familiarize PhD candidates with research methodo- logies and applications in the domain of management research. Methodology makes explicit the scientific frame in which research is conducted and scientific rules which have to be adhered to in executing research. The course consists of seven sessions of three hours. The first session provides an introduction to and characterization of methodology. The sessions two to four are dedicated to understanding the scientific rules, whereas the sessions five to seven are geared towards the scientific frame. The specific research projects of the participants serve as specific cases and are evaluated in these sessions. 2. Skill Training In this part of the program the writing, presenting, and research skill of the PhD candidates is trained. The following skill courses are scheduled in the program: • Literature Search in the Library and its Databases • Teaching, Presenting, and Writing in English • Publishing Strategy 3. Specialization Courses The main part of the program consists of specialization courses. Each PhD candidate composes an individual program with courses that they plan to take. These courses are in the field in which the PhD candidate is conducting their research and enhance specialized knowledge and research skills. ERIM’s fellows produce these specialization courses. However, PhD candidates can also decide to follow courses outside of ERIM. Several national and international networks and programs provide high quality specialized courses.

Course Load The course part of the PhD program consists of in total 1200 hours (to be completed in the first two years). At the end of the first year the candidate should have finished at least 750 hours. The remaining hours are placed in the second year. The courses are a compulsory part of the PhD program and at the end of both the first and the second year. The Research Proposal At the end of the first year (June) PhD candidates have to submit a written a research proposal which describes the question(s), positioning, method and so on, of the research they are going to carry out in the remaining three years they are in the PhD program. Two reviewers (one inside ERIM (Fellow/Member) and one international reviewer outside ERIM) will review the proposal. Based on their reviews a decision will be made whether PhD candidates can continue their research or have to leave the program.

Advertisements were placed in three national newspapers (Volkskrant, NRC Handelsblad and Intermediair). In these advertisements, general information about the PhD program was given and interested students were referred to our website for that provided more details about the program and the specific research projects which required PhD candidates. The recruitment procedure was successful. We were able to find 20 very good candidates. 15 of them were appointed at the Faculteit Bedrijfskunde and 5 of them at the School of Economics. 5.4 Completed dissertations in management in 1999 The following promotions were realized during the year under review: 1.
